Every time we have crab I save the shells and make stock, which can be used fresh the next day or frozen until needed. Recently I found that pureeing cauliflower makes a delicious, creamy, low-fat and non-dairy stand in for a cream soup or sauce. We decided to try it in a soup and it worked! Enjoy!
